In terms of sheer numbers, deals on individual games represent the bulk of the gaming offers we see on Black Friday. Based on what we’ve seen so far this year, that will again be the case, but it doesn’t mean you have no cheap options for picking up a console like PS4.
While it’s still early, the ads we’ve seen released to date do include some very nice PlayStation 4 offers. One of Target’s best gaming deals is a doorbuster that gets you a 1TB PS4 Slim and a copy of Spider-Man for only $200. You’ll find an identical sale at both Best Buy and Walmart, too. You could argue that would be a nice price for the system alone, but to get a $60 game that was just released in September makes it even sweeter.
While this being available through at least stores is encouraging, if you’re interested, you’ll want to head to your local store (or to its website) as soon as possible on Black Friday. In some areas, stores will actually open on Thanksgiving Day, and Best Buy will have early access in the beginning of Thanksgiving week. You can check out the full Target ad or the store you plan on heading to for further details.
We’re sure to see more deals pop up for PS4, and we’ll continue to update this post as they emerge. One pre-Black Friday offer is coming on November 10 at Sam’s Club, where you can buy a system (without any bundled games) for $229. Unlike Target, however, Sam’s requires you to have a membership.
On the games side, we’ve already seen confirmed discounts for some of PS4’s biggest games of the year, including God of War, NBA 2K19, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. We’ll be hunting for deals all month long, so be sure to check back with us as more Black Friday ads are revealed, and check out our roundup of PS4 deals.
